Fireball 2021: Adventure Awaits FAQs
- What is Fireball?
Fireball is AOA’s annual fundraising event to raise mission-critical dollars to support the faculty and students of Andrews Osborne Academy. Typically, this event would consist of a dinner and auction for an evening of community and fun!
- What’s different this year?
This year, Fireball will be held virtually on Saturday, May 15 from 6:00-7:30pm. The event will be live and feature hosts, special guests, and musical performances throughout the livestream. We hope to make this as fun and enjoyable as possible while raising some serious funds for the school. Leading up to the event, we’ll reveal hints about our hosts and special guests (some of whom are from many years ago).
There will be a variety of experiential auction items for you to bid on throughout the event, just like you would have at a Live Auction. We're also offering an opportunity to engage more fully in the evening by purchasing a VIP "Gala in a Box" package, which includes a deluxe charcuterie board, your choice of wine or beer, dessert, and a branded school item. When you purchase the VIP "Gala in a Box" option, you gain access to the event earlier (May 8), giving you even more time to see which items you'd like to bid on or Buy It Now!
This year, we’ll also offer a Community Tag Sale as part of the experience. Please visit the page dedicated to the Community Tag Sale to learn more!
- What’s the same in 2021?
We are pleased to offer enhanced sponsorship opportunities that reflect the spirit of Fireball 2021! We will also continue our “Take Flight” experience which, this year, will raise critical funds to offset the more than $125,000 that was invested in COVID-19 mitigation expenses to ensure a safe space for our students and employees.
